#1 Exfoliate before you start

Scrub your face gently to get rid of any dry, dead skin cells present on your skin. Doing this will take you one step closer to an even and smooth application of makeup. Exfoliate your face very gently, to prevent hurting yourself.

BB Pro Tip:

Opt for the St. Ives Apricot Scrub as it rids the face of dead skin cells and impurities so that it is left cleansed right from the pores. Its apricot content is rich in vitamin A and antioxidant compounds which soothe, heal and revitalise the skin.

#2 Prep your skin well

Applying a generous layer of moisturiser to your face will not only keep your skin hydrated but also prevent your patchy skin from flaking out. Next, do not skip applying a dewy, illuminating primer to your face as it gives you a clean and smooth canvas to work with.

BB Pro Tip:

Go for the Lakmé Absolute Skin Gloss Gel Creme as it’s multi-nutrient formula hydrates your skin and makes it look lustrous without any effort. Follow it up with a primer that will give you a flawless makeup finish and our favourite is the Lakmé Absolute Make-Up Primer.

#3 Use Cream Based Formulations

This one is the most important, you guys. Since your skin has dry patches, applying powder products will further dry you out and the product will cling on to the dry skin patches. Instead of picking powder products, switch to cream-based formulations as they do not dry you out.

BB Pro Tip:

We suggest you try the Lakmé Absolute Mattreal Skin Natural Mousse as its feather-light texture will give you peachy soft, naturally flawless matte finish.  

#4 Use A Dewy Finish Setting Spray

Lock your makeup by spritzing a dewy finish setting spray on your face. This will ensure that your makeup stays in place, and doesn’t move from the patchy spots of your face. The dewy finish will further ensure that the patches don’t show up thoroughly.
